In fall of 2022, the first phase of a multi-tiered renovation of Southeast Missouri State University’s (SEMO) Houck Stadium began, with an accelerated timeline to transform its 91-year-old existing stadium into a new front porch for Redhawk athletics and SEMO’s campus. Focusing on the player, fan and recruiting experience was key in helping form a new identity and provide a multi-phase, multi-use development revitalizing the gateway connecting the University and downtown Cape Girardeau. Construction on Phase One wrapped up in fall of 2023, including completing the main grand stand, concessions concourse, restrooms and turf field.
The updated new concourse is proudly branded with school colors, setting the stage for fans as soon as they approach the grand entrance and enhanced with colorful wayfinding elements. Under the prominent “SEMO” lighted signage, VIP fans can enter the terrace on field level, immersing themselves in the gameday experience.
